Thank you, as always, Valerie for your too kind words.

I do not think it is accurate or fair to say that we have established schools in Nicaragua -- although we were certainly instrumental in bringing education to Deaf children in Bluefields and Condega.  What we have done, however, was contribute substantially to the emergence of Deaf communities in those areas of the country (and in Bilwi, too) -- and this we did by fostering the spread of Nicaragua's indigenous signed language.

We lighted a spark -- but others did the rest, not the least of whom were the Deaf Nicaraguans themselves.

-- James
